ABC Cat : Black and White Cat Photo Book Review
Take one cat. Take photographs of the cat over the course of eleven years of its life, assign one photograph for each letter of the alphabet. Publish the collection in an elegant cover made of black velvet.
This is the simple but effective concept behind ABC Cat
As you sit perusing the stunning black and white studies, you will not turn too many pages before your thoughts begin to drift in all sorts of directions. As you hold the soft, very pleasant to touch book, you will unconsciously stroke the cover, just like stroking a cat!
Lorenz Kienzle was born in Munich, Germany, and has had his work exhibited in Berlin, London, Genoa and several other places throughout Europe.
The photographs in this, his first published book, are from his private collection which he accumulated over the years. He used the photographs to make little cat books that he gave each year as a special present to his girlfriend.

If you enjoy the atmospheric charm of black and white photography, and are a cat lover, then the pictures of Kater will enthrall you. And some of the images may momentarily mystify you as your mind takes in what exactly it is that you are seeing.
From A - Z, in one photograph Kater represents Acrobat, in another Edge, in one study the little cat represents Round, right through to Zebra.
The earlier photographs show Kater as a kitten, being a kitten, doing things kittens do. The later photos display the antics of Kater the independent adult cat, being captivating, lazy, aloof, mystifying and very amusing.
This is not one of those gigantic 'coffee table' books, but not one that you will want to hide in the bookshelf either, its striking appearance will make you, and your visitors, pick it up again, and again.
Cat Bad Breath.
Cat bad breath may mean more than your pet not being nice to be near. It is sometimes a clue that something needs attention and possibly a medical condition exists.
